2014 Failla Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
Region: USA, California
Grape Variety: Chardonnay
Dry medium-bodied white | Lobster!
Run by husband and wife team, Ehren Jordan and Anne-Marie founded Failla in 1998, and have since built a reputation on crafting terroir expressive wines influenced by Ehren’s training in viticulture from France.
With the tenacity of an American spirit and the allure of French je-ne-sais-quoi, this Chardonnay is big on its nose and body, with some pineapple and herbaceousness coming through. It sees some ageing in mainly old oak, with some in new oak and concrete eggs. Creamy and citrusy with some fresh, natural acidity, we like this best with lobsters to tease out its natural sweetness.
